Best Excuses to Get Out of School Swimming Lessons

The Top Ten
1 I'm on my period

My high school requires a written note from your parents for this to qualify as an acceptable reason to be excused.

As much as I hate getting periods, I'm still thanking them to this day for all the chlorinated hell they saved me from.

Will only work if you're female, hit puberty and only used once a month as that's how the menstrual cycle works.

But I'm a boy, oh wait...I wore a wedding dress to school once...I guess I can tr-wait, no that'll backfire lol what am I even saying help me

2 I forgot my trunks

This method is not great. My teacher just ask me to go get some spare pants from the thousand-year-old lost and found and wear it in the pool.

Ah, the classic, It usually can work if done once, but if done again, they might make you put a spare pair on.

But then you'll hear the dreaded "Spare costumes. Put one on." from your teacher.

I've had one and they'll just ask you to try on embarrassing spare costumes.

3 I'm allergic to chlorine

This one would probably work, don't quote me on that though, it depends on the teacher sometimes.

I used to really hate swimming because of many ridiculous reasons including my race.

Well, the teacher would say why did you even sign up

Lol this is literally my friend.

4 I'm feeling nauseous

Make it look like you do and act like you do as well.

this one will work for sure

5 The water pressure hurts my ears

This could work especially if you have an earache.

6 I pulled a muscle

Like the nausea excuse, act like you have.

7 I've got a open wound... down there

To make sure they don't look, say that you've got an open wound down in the groin.

YASSSSSSSSs this would work because they ain't gon look though your down there iykyk

8 I have an ear infection

It worked she didn't even know I was lying

I'm gonna try this but I think my teacher'll ask for a note

Amazing 😉 going to try it out in school tomorrow

€�This one works all the time”

9 I’m dead

Definitely going to work

LMAOOo this will work 10/10

10 I am feeling unwell

ah yes. post covid disorder

The Contenders
11 I’m pregnant

boi pregnant

12 I have swimmers ear

It's a pretty good excuse especially if you come to school with an earplug.

13 I've got a migraine

My teachers won't care.

14 I don’t know how to swim

Alright, then get that life jacket on and do 10 laps!

This would never work

Does not work

15 I have a headache

This has worked many ti mes

16 I have STDs

I simply screamed "I HAVE SYPHILLIS" and everyone just moved away from me and the teacher told me to stand next to the pool so I did and then he shoved me in

Make sure to shout really loud so all the other students hear you. "I HAVE (insert STD here)! "

This will get you out of swimming for sure. You most likely got STDs from the gym teacher anyway.

17 My mom wants me home...
18 I have diarrhea

That would definitely work I am gonna try it

Nobody wants a brown poopy pool

19 Oh No! I accidentally pooped my pants! I need to go home!

At swimming all u need to do is let it go and for sure they will make you leave!

20 I’m allergic to the teacher

Definitely doesn’t work

21 I turn into a mermaid when I’m in water so I don’t want to freak anyone out

LOL this probs wont work but its worth a try right... #H2ovibesfordays

Well I like the one where it says I'm PREGO!

22 Water is too cold

Nah, not too effective if the teachers can see nobody else is physically getting hypothermia.

It's horrid in the Changing Room, people see you naked, watch you and you are half naked in it.

Not a valid excuse in most schools

23 I don't want to get water in my ear
24 I've twisted my ankle

Limp all day and get crutches/bandages

25 I have a chest infection
